Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!Hello folks! So this month is Flash, Animation and Flash month for the %ArtHistoryProject.Film, Animation and Flash Mini-Contest!10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
So me and ^SqueakyToybox have been discussing about the idea of having a joint contest! We struggled for a while to find a good theme that would apply well across these mediums. So then we thought deviantART is full of members across the world. Even myself I'm from the UK and ^SqueakyToybox is from Australia so we're literally halfway across the world from each other.
So we thought a good theme to set you all is:
We would like you to create a piece of work using animation, video or Flash and we will award prizes for each gallery! So we will have a prize for a winner and runner up for film/animation and the same for Flash.
You have until the end of this month, February 28th to send all your work in and we'll announce winners shortly after! Now we appreciate that's not exactly a lot of production time for this sort of wor
Samhain: Inferno - Intro and RulesDisclaimerSamhain: Inferno - Intro and Rules1 year ago in Deviant Events More Like This
We disavow any insinuation that magic(k), Samhain, and witches/witchcraft are connected to Hell in any way, shape, or form. We are taking significant artistic liberties with Dante's Inferno and with witchcraft in an attempt to create a world that we hope will be interesting and engaging. We are fully aware that Samhain is not the same as Halloween, that being pagan does not make one a Witch, and that being a Witch and being Wiccan are not synonymous. We encourage beginners and curious outsiders to learn more about these religions and traditions and to keep in mind that this game is just that: a game.
Welcome, lonely Pilgrim. You are very far from home.
Tonight is Samhain, the night in which the veil between the world of the living and the spirit world is at its thinnest. It is the perfect time to embark upon a Divine journey to meet and learn from the souls of the Damned. You will need your wisdom and ins

PE Stereoscopy: How to View Stereoscopic 3D ImagesHow to View Stereoscopic 3D ImagesPE Stereoscopy: How to View Stereoscopic 3D Images1 year ago in Personal More Like This
There are three basic methods of viewing the stereograms we have on DeviantArt. There might be other methods which differ slightly, but these are the main ones:
Anaglyph (and other glasses methods)
Viewing stereo images with glasses is great, because because you don't need to squint your eyes or focus in strange ways to see in stereoscopic vision (stereo 3D). Furthermore, anaglyph images are fantastic, because you don't need a special TV or screen, just a pair of anaglyph glasses. These are pretty easy to get, you can find them with some old 3D films, books, or even in some stores. Chances are you might have a pair lying around the house.
Most anaglyph glasses are red on one eye, and cyan on the other, these are the most common for people to own. But there's a whole range of types of anaglyph using different colors. the whole point is to hide part of the image for each eye, so many opposite-colors can work.
PE Stereoscopy: What's Stereoscopy Anyway?So what is Stereoscopy Anyway?PE Stereoscopy: What's Stereoscopy Anyway?1 year ago in Personal More Like This
Stereoscopy, commonly known as '3-D' is a method of creating an image which creates an illusion of depth. This works by showing a slightly offset picture to your left eye than your right eye, making things appear further forward or back into the picture!
Stereoscopy covers any stereo viewing methods including:
Wiggle (A pair of stereo images which are alternated quickly to give the feeling of depth)
Cross-eyed/Side by Side (here's a great tutorial to help you see them)
Autostereogram (Like Magic Eye)
Etc. (This includes any other method of displaying a stereo image)

Project Educate: Interview with ^kingmanchengPassionate animator, dedicated Community Volunteer: today, we'll be looking into the thoughts of ^kingmancheng!Project Educate: Interview with ^kingmancheng8 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Please tell us a little bit about yourself.
I graduated from university with a BA honour in illustration and animation, having worked at a different university for a few years, I am now a fulltime freelance illustrator and animator.
When did you start animating?
When I was a young teen I reckon! During that time of my life gif animations really took off all over the Internet and so many young animators at that age got ahold of free gif animation compilers, so although I can't give an exact age, I was pretty young at the time!
When/how did you discover deviantART?
When I was about 15/16 years old, one of my friends from school did graphics design work in his own time and uploaded it here. He w
La LineaThis is one of the most influential and iconic animated series ever made in my opinion. La Linea (The Line) is a classic Italian animated series by Osvaldo Cavandoli. The animation follows the character, Mr. Linea, who is drawn by a single line. Even if you don't know La Linea, some of you may recognise the voice actor as the original voice of Pingu the penguin. The language he speaks is based on Italian (Milanese dialect) but spoken in a way that essentially is gibberish!La Linea10 months ago in Art Features More Like This
Due to it's 'lack of language' this became an international hit, which I think is one of the best essences of film making. Having the power to cross borders without a language barrier is a fantastic skill to have!
But why do I think this is one series we should all know about?
Mr. Linea is always presented with obstacles, drawn in by the animator. Sometimes he'll succeed, sometimes he'll fail. So for example perhaps he's trying to reach something high up, so he complains to the animator. The animator draws a flight o

Just a short article this week folks - as there is less to share whilst people busy themselves with the delights that is Christmas and the Holiday Season. With Winter drawn completely in, at least for most of us, the temptation to go out and photography (at least for most of us!) gets less and less. So why not stay in and concentrate on snapping those cosy log fires, beautiful baubles and maybe even venture out eventually for those icy snow shots? Share what you take this Christmas - on this journal to be featured next Friday for the New Year.
Finally - Merry Christmas to all - however you celebrate! I hope that this time of year is good for you

Within the mighty village of dAmn, a war is brewing -- a war to appease the Great Fella God!
Many in the past have sought ways to please this angry beast, and many have failed. These tales of great battle and loss are still whispered around the campfires of #devart: ^DaPineapple's valiant attempts to offer ^kingmancheng as a virgin sacrifice, or $fourteenthstar's struggles to serenade Fella with her dulcet Scottish tones .. but nothing could be found to please the Great Fella God, not even a scantily clad `iamnotelectricnet.
But now the tides are turning and the war is changing!
The mighty warrior `Tachy-on along with the valiant troops of Community Volunteers have found a way to please Fella, and now the tribes of dAmn are competing for Fella's blessing -- and so can you!
You can help gain favor to you and your tribe by luring and trapping deviants into the great village of dAmn -- but that is not enough to please the Great Fella God!

Art History - Renaissance: MannerismAs part of the Art History project being hosted by %communityrelations and being built by various members of the community, I am here to give you a brief introdcution to Renaissance Painting, with a focus on the Mannerist style.Art History - Renaissance: Mannerism2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Mannerism was a style during the high Renaissance (the 1500s) in Italy. In chronological order, Classical Renaissance preceeded it and the Baroque Period followed in Italy (see ~Supaslim from December 16th-18th for Baroque Art). But mannerism stayed popular outside of Italy, in much of Northern Europe until the 17th century. The markers of the Mannerist style are very long proportions, lack of obvious persepctive, odd or unlikely settings and very stylized poses and expressions. Michelangelo's styled was considered to be Early Mannerist and later Mannersit artists sought to immitate his style.
Mannerism, in content, focused mainly on the popular religious and mythological themes of the 16th century.
Art History - Roman SculptureAs part of the Art History project being hosted by %communityrelations and being built by various members of the community, I am here to give you a brief introdcution to Ancient Roman Sculpture.Art History - Roman Sculpture2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Sculpture in Ancient Rome was often made out of clay, bronze, marble or granite. There are some records of gold and silver figurines. Most metal sculptures and figurines did not survive into the modern day as they were metled down to be used for other things, but a few bronze statues have survived. Some of the marble and granite was also re-used, but more of them have survived.
Sculptures were typically created in a religious context in the Ancient Roman world as religion was very hard to seperate from everyday functions, unlike Western society today. Mythological themes, often replicated from Greek sculptures were the most commonly seen. This is because many sculptures were dedicated to to the gods as thanks, given as votive offerrings
